So, what kind of artists can we expect at the Eurovision Canada? Well, Canada has brought us some of the most popular names in the music industry. You can think about artists like Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Neil Young and Shania Twain. And of course a very familiar face in the Eurovision family; Céline Dion (winner of the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest).
If we will be seeing some of these artists on the Eurovision Canada stage is, of course, still to be seen.
The Eurovision Canada format
During the show, there will be artists from each of the provinces and territories competing in a head-to-head qualifier competition. These head-to-head competitions will lead to the semi-finals and of course, the grand finale.
All competitions will be televised, as well as the semi-finals and grand finale.
